Praise the Lord for another day and another chance to move forward with the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are those of you that made a resolution to become more physically fit in the New Year. Did you make the same commitment for your spirit? Just trying to get you thinking the right way.

Today’s Prayer

Father, More and more people today are concerned with their physical fitness and good health; But what about our spiritual fitness? I know You made us and You want us to take care of our bodies, but more important is our spiritual health. Paul told Timothy to “Train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and life to come” (1 Timothy 4:7-8). Please help us also work on “firming up our faith” in addition to firming up our bodies, so that we will be pleasing to You and an example to those around us. We want to grow closer and closer to You and would love to bring others along with us. Lord, anoint us. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

True Wisdom Comes from God

James 3:13-18

If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

Quote of the Day

Have we as a people been so dumbed down we can’t see it? Well, this is what happens, I’m afraid, in a postmodern culture where all values are equivalent and all truth is relative. One moment the President browbeats Congress to pass a trade bill with China. Forget Christians being persecuted. The same day the same President moments later angrily demands sanctions against Japan for hunting whales. There are no principles, just momentary preferences, and everything depends on what’s to be gained by those in positions of power….What’s good enough for whales ought to be good enough for persecuted Christians.
